my c-pap machine cured alot of those kinda problems
DUDE! You're fucked up,LOL....
Does your wife know how crazy you really are?
I got mad at my truck and let it sit for 13 years, without a start up.
Thats like starvin one of yer kids!
Cheers and beers
i'll pay for 2 sessions at a therapist....
At least yours runs and is in one piece all I can do right now it sit on the frame with the steering wheel in my hands and make engine sounds. But its good to here you didnt sell her I would regret it if I did.
ive felt like that before... so i slept in mine
Wow, Man, you hit the nail on the head, I went thru that same shit a few years back, damned near destroyed me, but now I got a great new woman who supports my hobbies, and the Ex is stuck with a bum that can't hold a job for more than a few months, I guess he sounded better in all those e-mails!
Just got back in from vroom vroom noise time! Almost got floors!
kinda sounded like a part of the movie Christine.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzIh6Ox5Vek
Mine is far from done..but i still talk to her...
Hodge - its getting warm outside ... the Lanier swap meet is in 2 weekends ... whats a little put down the road gonna hurt? I'll be looking for you. Sounds like you need to get out more.
Pussy. Court got his truck RUNNING in this friggin weather. AND DROVE IT!
Oh yeah, with the carb off of your 53 that wouldn't iron out so you bought a new one!
Oops, I'd best not piss you off if I want that trailer and log splitter rental...
You are so not alone!
'58 Ford!!! Got to love it. Thanks for the story and I wish you the very best not only with your car but most of all your wife and kids.
KEEPING THE HOBBY ALIVE!!!
Man Your so right. I have been working crazy lately. Things that have been hitting lately have been outright wierd.
first no job, then a job, then no job, then a job...
Been getting some good training in, but had to move the shop. Still in the process of that.
Im looking forward to the swap meet. Anybody else going?
Im hoping to have her primered and insured by then...
cheers and beers
I get attached to cars and can't get rid of them.None of my cars are nice,just old rough cars but i love em like children,when their broke I feel like I've let them down till their fixed.
Guys, it's not crazy,it's called "Research and Developement" time! Sitting in the shop looking at,or sitting in,the project,is quaility time "envisioning and planning".
What a great idea!! I'm gunna have to try that
My buick has been apart for the last few months for paint, I know how you feel. Some nights after I'd get a few things done, I would just sit down, look at the car, and think (a little bit anyway) about what was next on the to do list, or just take in what progress I'd just made......With the radio on, no distractions, and something to keep my hands busy, it's easy for my brain to relax. You don't "need" therapy, it IS therapy
I have this same problem every year........Its called winter in northwest ohio! I can't wait to jump in and go for a ride!
this thread proves why oprah has 72 bazillion dollars.
I did the same thing last night. Around 10pm went outside and tried starting mine up. NOT to my surprise the battery died.
Yes, but her audience is concerned and obsessive about lesser things...........We're talking about cars here, it's far more serious.
OAFRA sux. '58 Fords rule! When and where is the Lanier swap?
A nice slow wash with a soft sponge and warm water... A big fluffy towel to dry her.. Vacume her ever so gently making sure to get in every nook and crany (what ever the hell a crany is..) check her oil.. Air in the tires.. Ummmmmmmmmmm i gotta go,,,,,,,
Thats the funniest thing I've read in a long time....
Take solice in the fact that you are not crazy...few weeks back after I got the section done on the hood and had the front clip all put together to where I could get a visual of the truck....
I kept goin out to the garage just to look at her....third trip out there The door of the garage was cracked open and my wife was in the kitchen (which leads to the garage) and she overheard me talkin to the truck...this is what she heard....
"yeah, its been rough....hmmm your gonna be one sexy bitch....we'll get back together...."
All the sudden the door whips open and the wife asks....who you talkin too?
She thought I was on the phone....then she realized all the phones were in the house....then she thought I was loosing it....
sometimes i look at i look at the 33 before i go to work gives me another reason to go work makes my day better
Lol,,hahah yeah , Im proud of him too. I think its been too many cold ass days and all the other responsibilities i have that are weighing me down.
Need a good Jolt of spring feaver, that'll get me going.
Glad that carb is working out for him , I think there is another problem brewing on my 53 so thats got me a bit baffled at the time..
No problem a little ribbing never hurt anyone..might get my ass off this couch and get out there and do something
hey wait..you guys got each other..thats not playing fair
